The Devil's Garden
In the garden the flowers call you to them only to make a fool of you by hiding their pain. Don't trust the flowers, they promise you more than your memory can hold. Aggression is only and afterthought supplying one with a false sense of power, the will to overcome... like a thorny weed plucked from the ground.
